Proposition 65: Eliminating Cancer Causing Chemicals


Way back in 1986 audiences couldn’t get enough of Tom Cruise in “Top Gun.” Lionel Richie was burning up the charts with “Say You, Say Me.” And the voters of California passed a ballot initiative called Proposition 65.

If you’re not familiar with that last one, it was a law that required all companies doing business in California to disclose if their products contained substances known to cause cancer or harm reproductive health. It didn’t ban the products, just allowed consumers to make an informed decision.

As a result of the law, it was disclosed that a major brand of imported candy contained high levels of lead–and you thought the sugar was bad for kids.

In several cases involving nail polish, it was found that manicurists were being exposed on a daily basis to high levels of toluene, formaldehyde, and other known carcinogens. As a result nail polish manufacturers have either greatly reduced or eliminated these compounds, and nail salons now use micro ventilation systems.

We’re proud to say that Ariaprene is in full compliance with Prop 65 disclosure. When we make our alternative to synthetic foam, we don’t use any of the chemicals on the state’s danger list. Ariaprene is amazing and toxic-free.

It’s just that clean and simple.
